Fred was an incredible help to us. We threw him a curve ball and decided to purchase a home while we were deployed in Antarctica. One can only imagine the challenges that Fred faced with finding us a home, checking out neighborhoods, video taping interiors and conveying that information to us - all via email and phone calls from 10,000 miles and 16 time zones away. Fred rose to every challenge and absolutely exemplified himself. We couldn't have completed this purchase without his patience and diligence. I highly recommend Fred to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the Ocala area. Wes Thurmann
We, my wife, Debbie, and I, consider it a privilege to write a review for Fred Franks, our realtor when we relocated to Ocala. As we began our search for our new home, we contacted many realtors. Fred Franks is the only one who responded. We told him what we wanted: size, price and location. After many visits to homes, Fred showed us just what we wanted. Wonderful. Not only, did he find the home we wanted, he has a wealth of knowledge about Ocala. He provided us with the name and number of folks who could help us with some changes we wanted to make to our new home. Fred continues to stay in contact and is always willing to help us. It is an understatement to say Fred went over and beyond his role as a realtor. He is an asset to Ocala Real Estate Agents. Bill Taylor
Frederick (Fred) Franks has been the best realtor that I have ever encountered. He recognizes the needs of others and reaches out to lend a helping hand in every area of the process, he has effective working relationships with his clients, he develops workable action plans, and formulates strategies, tactics, and action plans to get what needs to be done, done. If you are looking for a realtor to get the job done and in a timely manner, Fred is the guy! Kelley James
Frederick Franks did an excellent job in selling my house and finding me a new home. He was very prompt and courteous throughout the whole selling and buying experience. Not only is he professional but I highly recommend him for either listing or buying a new home. He is also very helpful explaining all questions related to the housing contracts and will always be there to answer any question you may have. I give him five stars!!!! Jullian Niehaus
Fred Franks was a pleasure to work with. He always answers his calls and when he isn't able to he calls back right away. He made the home buying process easy especially as first time home buyers.

Great service! We moved from Missouri to Florida, and it was seamless. Mr. Franks sent multiple videos of listings, as well as a final walk through video of the home we purchased. He was there for us every step of the way. As a veteran, going through the VA home loan process was easy with Mr. Franks. Josh Strayhorn

Fred was our realtor. He worked very hard for us and was always courteous and professional. He promptly returned calls and emails. We came from Connecticut to look at houses so our time was limited. Fred spent many hours with us to be sure we found the house that fit our needs. I would strongly Jennifer Woods

Call it amazing, the experience I had working with Katrina to find the home I had been searching for, for quite some time.
